Went to the plot today. Weeded the potato patch, me thinks they have the onset of blight. Planted up some calabrese and more herbs.
Rubarb and strawberries have been plentiful. Fruit bushes are only into their second yr so not much fruit but the one's in the back garden have done well. I'm not expecting anything off the fruit tree's. There was only one flower on the plum and about four on one of the apple tree's. The pear tree's look dead, buy cheap - pay twice .
Picked the first of the beetroot, shallots, pea's, a cue and and one red tomato.
Gluts on lettuce, swede, chard, spinach at present.
I'm trying the '3 sister 's'. I've 2 mini pop beds, so have a squash plant growing into one with dwarf french beans planted within reaching distance into the bed. In the other sweetcorn bed, two courgette plants trained into it. No beans in this one though - this is my version and called the 2 sister's
If you post a pic GWRS, maybe able to help.
